An early attempt at typography.

Recommended Posts

A few years ago I found out about FontForge. I didn't know much about typography, but I heard most courses on graphic design go through the subject at least once so I've for a long time wanted to design at least one font.

 

Now my experience with FOSS graphics software is that they're feature rich, but they usually have an awful UI.

 

With Affinity Designer I could focus on the type design and so I'd only have to do the very font specific stuff like spacing and kerning in FontForge.

 

This is what I've come up with up till know. I'm still trying to figure out how to enter kerning rules in FontForge so combinations like "ij" and "To" look pretty bad.

 

The fonts can be downloaded here:
